Suburban Shell

Mr Black has bought a new Vauxhall.
Yet his new garage looks really awful.
Mr’s Whites curtains are looking grey.
She hasn’t changed them for many a day.
The Brown family’s mongrel is running amok.
We all believe it should be locked up.
Mr’s Green’s hedges could do with a trim.
That child next door is making a din.
Mr Black’s bought yet another new car.
With the wages he’s on it must be hard.
Yes, we love to talk of our neighbour’s ways.
Such a pleasant way of passing our days.

1973, May
